Description

Grace.

I didn’t set out to create this craft. I was working on a thrust pod for a mega lifter, but one of the wing configurations I came up with in the process quickly evolved into something more. When all was said and done, I was quite smitten with the looks and gave it the first name that came to mind.

While not groundbreaking in its capabilities, the Grace lives up to its name in other ways as well. At 57 parts, it’s easy on the CPU. Despite that, it can achieve a 100 x 100 with plenty of fuel to spare. The RCS is also carefully balanced for minimal torque when translating, and CoM and DCoM lie very close together.

It can easily adapt to other capabilities as well - the shown configuration is just a reference; the docking port, cargo bay and crew cabin can easily be swapped out with other modules as you like. THe only thing that needs to be done in that case is strutting the forward fuel tank to the fuselage.

I hope you enjoy flying this plane as much as I enjoyed making it.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.5.
